The Philippine Embassy in Qatar has suggested that the release of the passport could take one to two months. In my case, I received an SMS from the embassy stating that my passport was ready in 3 months. Therefore, it is advisable to renew your passport 6 months before it expires so that you do not have to worry about any travel plans.
